Well, our first Soulka weekend of 2016 was certainly a big hit with all events thoroughly enjoyed by many Islanders and visitors.
We now look forward to the Sanday's busiest weekend of the year.
Food, Farming and Fishing is only a few weeks away. The leaflet with all events and times can be found on the FOOD FARMING AND FISHING 2016 PAGE ON LEFT HAND SIDE.
These are now available in local shops and other public places.
The page also contains the Sea Angling (which booking is essential for) and Home Brew and Homemade Wine Competition posters.
Soulka..... the meaning :
A word recorded by Jakob Jakobsen, the Faroese scholar who visited Orkney to collect words over a hundred years ago. It is listed in Gregor Lamb’s book ‘Hid kam intae words’, where the meaning is given as ‘the circle of the horizon as far as can be seen’. We have extended this meaning to include our cultural as well as geographical horizon.
